THE WISE GOAT

ONE day a Goat was on the top of a high, steep rock, picking the few blades of grass that he could find there. A Wolf who was watching him from the foot of the rock, wanted to catch him, but could not climb so steep a place.


[Illustration]

"Friend Goat!" said he, "come down into the field. You can get all the sweet grass here that you can eat, and it will not cost you anything."

"Thank you," said the Goat. "You are inviting me not to feed myself, but to feed you."
